Sellout crowd on hand at Disch-Falk

June, 8, 2009
AUSTIN, Texas -- There again is a sellout crowd of more than 7,000 people watching the game at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.

So far, the partisan fans have been happy after Texas scored three runs in the first inning and has cruised to a 5-0 lead after five innings.

To give you an idea of how in demand tickets are, scalpers were out more than a mile from the stadium trying to accost fans as they left Interstate 35.

Some fans had a creative way to witness the game, watching the action from the concourse of adjacent McCombs Field. Those fans have craned around to watch the action over the right-center fence at the stadium.

Fans also have packed the berms behind the left-field fence, watching the game as they sit in lawn chairs and on blankets over the TCU bullpen.

The weather is cooperating -- a little. The temperature has dropped to "only" 91 degrees.
